oh. yes if. u.s. but forces in syria say islamic state has finally been driven out of its last remaining stronghold but months of fighting is reduced much of the braca to room. british foreign secretary slams labor party m. pays for appearing on this channel despite a dozen of his own party members and even his father being guest c. plus coming up to this stuff we hear from schoolchildren in afghanistan who say they were injured when u.s. troops opened fire after rocks were thrown of military vehicles.
6:01 am
hybrid afternoon for me kevin on wednesday the eighteenth of october now just turned one of the afternoon in moscow first the newest thirty minute news update us but forces in syria have declared a victory over islamic state in iraq claiming that the city is now fully under their control check out these latest pictures from rocka it's a virtual ghost city the destruction you're seeing here was caused by either ice still a militia shelling or the u.s. led coalition support now a.j. agencies are warning today that there is a huge effort still needed to end this here ongoing humanitarian crisis there it's a double edge sword while the international coalition says to the city is still not fully liberated it's only ninety percent clear of ice still a spokesperson for the u.n. secretary general confirmed the destruction we have received reports said much of the city has been damaged or destroyed due to the fighting we're closely monitoring
6:02 am
the situation and stand by to deliver lifesaving assistance to those in need as soon as acts. this is granted that security council traditions permitted a potted history here i still took iraq as its defacto capital in twenty forty nine the first major military offensive against the terrorists began two years after that it was one serious six largest city but now it's been left shouted. i. recall ition air forces were ready to demolish the whole building to talk to one member off i say they have no problem killing civilians but the more you rant for
6:03 am
that and be of any human being would be afraid of the sound of the planes makes us afraid of they were shelling the civilians like building houses families destroyed by coalition aircraft and ten percent hit their targets the rest civilians. the un estimates that's an average of twenty seven people are being killed in iraq on every day. and they seem to be no real escape for these civilians the level of suffering koreans predicates family of the children sexually. strikes targeting a. very base journalist martin j. told us that there's a long road to recovery now for iraq. certainly there have been significant bombing campaigns which have come with a very high civilian casualty price which have had an impact against myself but i
6:04 am
don't think we can say i mean the war against iceland we know it perhaps we can say it's more or less over but extremism know so you know so you know in syria north iraq's there are huge questions to deal with in the coming months and years and needs to be rebuild trail thousand people need to be put back into homes you know there's a massive reconstruction job ahead of them and nobody on the international circuit you know the americans is is we're going to even suggesting they going to pay for it so you know it's another question where does this money come from. next today the british foreign secretary is going on the attack of opposition labor party employees for appearing on our channel has called it a scandal of. you studied the output of of russia today and indeed if you consider the state of the of the prince in russia this president it is an absolute it is a russia today it is a scandal it is a scandal that members of the party opposite are continuing to validate
6:05 am
to validate legitimate. that kind of propaganda by doing all those programs strong words from boris johnson that his repeated use of the word scandal as he talks about r.t. in the on the floor of the house of commons earlier on tuesday he talked about labor members of parliament appearing on our team but of course members of his own party have appeared regularly and frequently and. since the channel began r.t. has responded to those comments editor in chief margarita simonyan calls johnson's remarks banal she said that he was using his own freedom of speech to bully his colleagues for exercising that that's of course is a pretty awkward. sation it's an awkward conversation that he may be having with his own father because stanley johnson has appeared himself on r.t. he was on one of our shows going underground talking about his anti brecht it book
6:06 am
and he was asked by host action returns the whether any of the characters in his book were based on either of his sons i do notice how you take sides in this book what does this mean or take kerry stokes the a bully a blonde haired former mayor of london how he was absolutely living up to the expectations people had of him wowing the crowds were every went he could be serious too if it was absolutely necessary who is this former mayor of london character a little serious to do is absolutely as it were we all will face reality sometimes we have to be we have to be serious well you are right until. you know i said absolutely nothing boris will be that happy but now who is this look i'm not saying that that particular character is a million miles away from another member of my family whom you have. mentioned today that he didn't confine his comments to r.t. he took a russia as a whole in his inimitable fashion russians have been up to all sorts of mischief in
6:07 am
many countries but so far we cannot yet i can foresee any direct russian cyber attacks on this country so he doesn't have a specific instance in mind but boris johnson has in the past hinted at why he thinks russians are so mischievous he says they do it because they can. well as a number of conservative party m.p.'s have appeared on it quite happily over the years in fact in the past two years alone fifteen of them have come to talk to us we're very pleased to see him to including a former energy and climate change minister charles hendry the system of government which might free it to put all the two conservative party m.p. and also regular guest on this channel that look at shinseki anybody who challenges and criticize as i think of that i think they should pause and take a moment to actually look at the interviews to look at the sort of questions that we receive as british policy politicians to look at the sort of context of what we
6:08 am
are discussing we are evaluating and giving our opinions to russian and international viewers i've always found the interview to the interviewing techniques and practices to be very sensible and professional and that is why i continue to appear on this program it is basically accuse you of validating propaganda your thoughts on that i think is very very important in these very difficult international times particularly when tensions are growing that we continue to engage and appear on each other's programs i don't accept this criticism by the way we are criticised a lot for appearing on r.t. both in british media and also by colleagues are you going to be swayed away and people like you from coming on to the program because of what boris is at the say on no not at all and i've discussed this with colleagues. as long as continues to
6:09 am
operate and has a license within the united kingdom. and other politicians will continue to engage with them as we do with c.n.n. as we do with the for your french equivalent and many many other international channels. long show we welcome it now next today u.s. troops in afghanistan of allegedly fired at school children injuring two boys the shots were apparently fired after children threw rocks at a military vehicle. most of how this morning i want to go to school when i entered the school some of a classmate sticks stones and threw them at us equals they opened fire in return i injured my leg my friend was also injured now in hospital. i came to school and i was playing there when the u.s. convoy passed by some of the boys threw stones at it then the u.s. forces started shooting. the.
6:10 am
understand that the children threw stones at the u.s. tanks the don't know any better because their children but the u.s. troops are educated they came here to rebuild their country instead the open fire children. were sort of a common origin this was not the kind of reaction you expect they should have contacted the school administration and this is not good we condemn this incident the government shouldn't just agave this case. we've been in touch with nato command in afghanistan to try to get a handle clear of what's happened here so far can tell you we've still had no response the united states as a part of history entered afghanistan in two thousand and one believing the then ruling taliban were sheltering osama bin larder bin laden rather he was wanted over the nine eleven attacks but that was then this is now sixteen years old with bin laden long of the picture the americans are still there and the casualties from that foreign troop presence
6:11 am
a still mounting. day he says i mean for me i was praying in my house and when i saw american helicopters i told my wife and children to save themselves after that i just heard a loud noise and then my house was destroyed six people were wounded including women and children. they destroyed our house and our family members wife the americans are killing our women and children every day in afghanistan and they just say sorry it was a mistake. was sitting in a room together and suddenly we had the massive bombardment of our village and i was injured. when the explosion happened i was near to my uncle and cousins american soldiers opened fire and
6:12 am
a bullet flew about my face i ran in here and came out on the hours later my uncle and cousins were dead so i went to the village to tell everyone whether think of the sixteen years of being in afghanistan it's quite obvious the strategy has not worked whether politically speaking are tactically speaking and then they look at military operations i think one can say that whatever they do it backfires that there's not been proper accountability apart from a few soldiers that have been arrested on behavior like this but by and large there's always a legitimate excuse to come up with saying blaming someone else rather than themselves. muslim public holidays could eventually be recognized in some parts of germany as the news out it's an idea being floated anyway by the german interior minister to potentially include islamic festivals to the public holiday calendar other politicians aren't so sure though senior and pay for the christian social union which is chancellor merkel sister party said it's completely out of the
6:13 am
question but back to the interior minister he later played down the idea saying it was misinterpreted we asked a few people in berlin on the streets what they thought of the plan anyway potentially. i have absolutely no problem with it it's fine germany is a country open to something like that. yeah it's been met i'm just not sure about that if i moved to another country they wouldn't just establish holidays or things close to my heart has mixed feelings about it but. i think it is difficult to establish a muslim holiday in germany as it will challenge the tolerance of many people even if they are not christians this could boost right wing ideology i think we should wait at least twenty five years until the societies acceptance level is strong enough. the latest survey suggests that seven of the ten germans would reject the introduction of islamic holidays in the country as you'd expect the issues expose some pretty sharp divisions. the reality is this the. americans party the christian
6:14 am
social democrats are being forced into leading a really important debate which is what does integration look like angela merkel's attitude on this is going to be that we have an enlightened german society which talks about political is a freedoms of people to live as they want people to freedoms for people to worship and live free and to be integrated in a democratic a secular society what you've got is a gym a politician capitulating once again to make minorities hundreds of different religions you can have hundreds of different holidays at the end of the day christian culture christian holidays and stock capitulating to islam minorities europe as we see it today and it's going to continue to be is going to be more integrated i think the difficulty is that we've seen with the rise of the alternative for deutschland in the recent parliamentary elections the far right there neo nazi the fascist the anti immigrant the people who want to see
6:15 am
a breakdown in a multicultural society and having different factions at each other's throats what you want is to segregate people died not on and it is a christian country if you're muslim holidays go to a muslim country go to a christian holiday you expect to abide by the christian rules if i went to a muslim country and expect to abide by the muslim moves there soon they wouldn't give me a christian holiday so let's get it right christian country christian values you abide by the christian bank holidays and the christian laws i think creating a plural democratic free society where people are free to live and express their beliefs as they see fit is really really important we don't want to have offices and workplaces and schools where muslim jewish and hindu kids can have time off because those holidays are not protected and visit the only thing germany's talking about anybody arguing against is really to create it in prehistoric. well what you want the segregation it's quite clear you want segregation you want to segregate people into a religious beliefs and. so let's go away celebrate their own religious oldies what
6:16 am
we want is a fully integrated national holiday like we want to be as i would national day for england a fully integrated national holiday for people that we don't want to segregate people like you do we will fully inclusive holiday. the danger of an extremist attack is that an unprecedented level according to the head of the country's domestic intelligence service full story sixty seconds away. i.
6:17 am
here's what people have been saying about redacted and. it's. the only show i go out of my way to. really packed them. all over a party america is doing the same we are apparently better than. the c. heard of. jack tonight president of the world bank. sent us an e-mail. in britain the head of the country's domestic intelligence service is warning them that the threat of terrorism is at an unprecedented level the statement. in a speech to journalist specializing in security. it's clear that we're contending
6:18 am
with an intense u.k. terrorist threat from islam mystic stream ists that threat is multi-dimensional evolving rapidly and operating at a scale and pace we've not seen before the director general of m i five has issued warnings like this before prophetic maybe two in july twenty sixth the lee said in the interview that a terror attack in the u.k. was a matter of when not if a few months later he stressed once again that there would be terrorist attacks in the u.k. and so it came to pass with the u.k. hit by several atrocities it seems his previous warnings were accurate there's another side to this to a rise in hate crime in the u.k. according to the home office it's up by a record twenty nine percent compared to twenty fifteen was you can see it in the graphic of my shoulder that spike was triggered around about the same time of the e.u. referendum and it's been repeatedly fueled after each terror attack that's hit the u.k. to. i
6:19 am
recall a story from a colleague of mine who ran a counter extremism program in london in some of the most deprived areas of islam to be exact and he said that. some of the boys that he was. expected to kind of to radicalize had been affected because of hate crime their mothers had been sworn out family members had been spotted that they had suffered hate crime in this case and that just made them more angry and they were seeking
6:20 am
a sense of belonging with the extremists or the radicals sort of speak so yeah it does have a knock on effect and this is the. nice bit of news for inside russia no heading back to sochi again big event there all week so many people attended the fake news discussion at the world festival of youth and students of they run of the seats at the venue apparently youngsters from across the globe are down there in sochi by the sea for the gathering the number of participants they're pretty impressive over twelve thousand visitors from russia itself and slightly more from over one hundred other countries it's the middle of the first of a week now it's been flooded cultural sports and science entertainment programs so serious matters raised as well as open discussions of all the prominent social and humanitarian activists is well underway but making friends of course is the sweetest part of. the world that's what has such a long tradition of bringing people together and really breaking down artificial barriers between countries i think it's. the last one meeting people from one
6:21 am
hundred eighty different countries i think specifically meeting people from north korea was super special because i would have never had that opportunity anywhere else honestly i can't even describe how i feel so lucky i'm so fortunate to have this opportunity to be able to meet people and educate myself about cultures all over the world and different societal and political issues it's i can't even explain the feeling i get from this experience it's amazing nobody has any barriers against each other there are no there are no grudges i think how excited everyone is to see americans i was very surprised because the conference is about anti imperialism but whenever i talk to these countries that are affected by u.s. policy in a negative way they're still so excited to see us here in solidarity with them it's not anti-american at all it's nice to see the positivity is not no it's not new though this thing's been going for decades and over the decades the festivals provan to be a life changing experience for some of its visitors we've been bringing you some of the stories today we've got the story of a soviet boy one side of the german girl on the other who met at the event in
6:22 am
moscow sixty years ago but whose plans to forge a lasting friendship long well quite to be. the converse of that she keeps up the compression wave beach and she's going to get so deal with like a yellow crazy american must be out of. hand with kids we. broke down so we will bleed when we need to use good chance you could use that and so i did disposal of them would mean you know just. some of us thought of them yes we had just given me.
6:23 am
so it's more bookish more but it will grow up the youngest if you use such a school so you're just a little bit of the neo first but i see. the movie appreciate the store as such at the now would he. know you'll swim in the lurch in the coolest bust even though you would she sure. sessions on the porch in photoshop and so while we're on the look the cool. short lived of all the speakers and took over us that no nucular what each of us in the. book says i. you know as my dear old mum once said you never know what's around the corner but i can tell you that's the way the news is looking for moscow so far this wednesday at the pharmacy
6:24 am
through the afternoon in moscow when you check us out facebook follow us on twitter on main site of course dot com for me kept it all in for now thanks for. watching. one almost shows seem wrong but all roles just don't hold. any new world yet to shape out these days comes to educate and in games from an equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. here's what people have been saying about redacted in the navy seals exactly it's full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know
6:25 am
a lot of the really packs a punch to sleep yampa is the john oliver of our three americas do the same we are apparently better than blue for us to see people you've never heard of love redactor the night my president of the world bank go take your money go write me seriously send us an e-mail. in case you're new to the game this is how it works my economy is built around corporations corporations from washington washington controls the media the media control over voters elected a businessman to run this country business equals power who must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. live
6:26 am
. live live live live . i'm actually retired they were going underground today as the u.n. security council debates the ongoing bombing of yemen by british backed saudi forces is that the killing wounding or displacement of over three million people coming up in the show how did the elites betray britain award winning author and daily mail sketch writer quintin let's lays into what he calls the patronize and to rule the u.k. in the now finally getting their comeuppance and after this week's hurricane
6:27 am
ophelia and jump speech on iran will it be climate change or nuclear war that gets us we ask legendary science communicator dr called you can drink coffee to get a good night's sleep and how politics is crucial and from the headlines well explore all the columns columns with that moscow man on the kremlin's com over. the lives of all going up in today's going underground but first if the burning grand felt tower in west london as we govern emblem of austerity to bailout the banks resumes policy of universal credit is emblematic arguably of the journey that austerity has taken the british people on for britain's politician in charge of it david gold giving evidence in parliament today it is about the pitfalls of signing checks off for the poor universal credits it's a next step in our journey a journey to a welfare state that gives people the help that they need but does not trust them independence. a welfare state that believes we have to support that one but that
6:28 am
simply signing a check is not all you know so what is universal credit will the government has posted a host of videos on you tube to help so-called customers i.e. the most vulnerable in u.k. sir d. to understand what it is passwords apparently are particularly important keeping your details safe and secure is one of the most important things to do online and having a strong password helps to remember a password starts with a sentence or some words that you remember for example i love ice cream pujols have great yes pujols have great hair seriously though what have been the results of teresa mayes policy a by product of bailing out the richest banks on the planet when it comes to even mainstream media here's one food bank volunteers view of universal credit these people are suffering which have been. so people like us need to voice stand that everybody stopped in one
6:29 am
council alone it's been reported that ninety two percent of social housing tenants are now in rent arrears as the roll out of the universal credit system begins but if homelessness is the result of the new policy this comes only after the un and the international red cross have expressed concern about raising rates policies it is arguably the recognition that elites are completely out of touch this is led to the rise of phenomena like german corbin and bricks it on the other side of the atlantic donald trump and a new book by about one of the greatest political sketch writers of his generation quentin let's argues that the people have had enough quentin welcome to going underground or perhaps realizing bastards how the elites betrayed britain clearly you're a supporter of jeremy corbyn drama donald trump in this book i'm not really a supporter of there is no. but what i'm trying to do in this book is explain how it's come about that these many revolutions have happened. the reason it happened is that we have an elite in this country go to you know this is
6:30 am
a book about the new the current establishment but there crumbling falling into the sea and what glimmer of hope for the people you mention is the death of the first people i know that was i think it was an early sign of what can happen when public sentiment rises up and you have the death of diana it was an extraordinary moment and the british establishment became scared and they thought yikes we've got to do something about this now in the event it was something as silly and sort of small as the flying of a flag a backing a palace but it was a moment when the british people saw we can affect change with our sentiment our feeling and. of course it was a big vote as well and one response to investigate by these so-called elites is the use of border use a lot of trying to more or less of this so called elites these are the people there were this is the parliament these are lawyers these are the civil servants they really are the elite they are in how do they use border. revolution very good point
6:31 am
if you if you go on television and you are incredibly boring which i hope i'm not being then your audience will switch off and the public will stop paying attention british politicians and i suspect also european and russian politicians as well are incredibly good at doing board and we've had various chancellors of the exchequer our current one philip hammond is an olympic gold medalist when it comes to boredom and if you if people detach people switch off from politics then the people in charge can do what they want there are so many facets of civic society investigating this book let's just take a look at culture. people rebelled eventually against say the turner prize the turner prize this annual event is great art. good eyes by take out or in the b.b.c. and it's meant to be about argument be therefore about beauty is it not but in fact what's happened in recent years we've had most ridiculous things i don't know what we've had what we had was one of them had a turnip on a bicycles are not that and it's just. ludicrous modern art has become to completely to tell us what they said about the pressure is that but if he does
6:32 am
their power one hundred in and actually what's happened in the event is that people have stopped paying attention to the turner prize and the public of just laughed at it so it's gone beyond useful and then it becomes much more serious. obviously the destruction of the series as well but you talk about the chief scientific advisor to. g.m. food who told us diesel cars of the future david king professor david king held up as a great orthorexic and you see science is the is often used as an ally of the technocracy because science is something that most of us don't understand so they can say ah well science says this and that is the ultimate tautology now that religion has been and what happened is david king told us all that we should be using diesel cars because it was going to save the planet alas it did the exact opposite and well it did not so much saving the planet but it made a lot of people very ill and the government later admitted that diesel cars were
6:33 am
killing people with a fuse so if someone watching today is being told by their boss to write mission statements all these missions whether you like mission statements mission the statements i just corporate buy the yacht and they talk about these corporations i mean even british aerospace which is a an arms manufacturer has a mission statement about its values. that's very useful as well as a missiles flying towards the enemy you don't think saudi autocrats are impressed by these documents i don't i don't suppose that your average saudi king when he's thinking about buying a whole load of rockets looks at a mission statement or says that that makes me feel good a new image of the actual will of us so are you saying this any way out of it or do you think the brics it is signal to us that actually the people have had enough of this kind of book baloney breaks it was a terrific thing that is now a year and a half ago and we're still you know still talking if we're going to be leaving the european union and so the british establishment and actually the european establishment going on. complete dirty protest and he's trying to pretend that this
6:34 am
thing isn't going to happen or if it does happen that they can somehow blunt it and disgraceful behavior we're seeing what's going on kenneth clarke prime among them the conservative chancellor saying oh you know we sensible people don't think that we should be doing this well so we can but people have voted and you've got to give the you've got to give let breaks it happen because if that doesn't happen imagine the damage that will be done to public belief in democracy but this isn't just a book about democracy about bricks it's a wider book i hope about the people at the top becoming completely divorced from the people at the bottom the audience figures with b.b.c.'s programs are all going to kill you saying the government is all over the b.b.c. or out of these elite and out of touch with the governors of the b.b.c. tremendous news they don't tend get their jobs even though the not now governors they're called members of the trust but they still get their jobs through connections they've no members of them then don't sit indoors one could say from present who put their names forward and say i'd like to be
6:35 am
a governor oh no you've got to be a member of an approved cost really it's no longer class it's quite wrong to think about britain being run still as some old fashioned class system that is so out of date is this new technique that runs britain and europe and possibly other countries as well i don't know but the one and i know about is britain if so do you really think that the these new developments the end of it i mean you talk about the legal lobel commission which makes it sound a bit like some conspiracy because of the global commission on what is a global there's a legal drug lobel commission i think it's a little commission on drugs which richard branson has global commission he point he appoints the people and says we are a commission what is the word commission mean it means absolutely nothing it really just means a group who committed to do something. that is an example of self selecting suits suits in the trough that's what we have here. this is why i call them that they're not terribly patronized people they're saying. to the little people to hoard of oil you know you shall do this they will actually have your answer as
6:36 am
a role model of what he shouldn't be bronson's a terrible man. richard branson oughtn't to. have him on and about it because he has this group called the elders who are again a group of self selected x. states people fail politicians basically who go around the world telling serbo countries we are to call not developing building. telling them how to solve their problems well how did he do that should be a question for the people of those countries and donald trump had a very good thing recently in that slightly mad speech he gave the united nations he talked about the importance of the nation state of the nation state is important idea because it is a state in which the voters can get rid of the people who will be people in europe are certainly going to. see that the ability to get rid of your governors absolutely vital and then on top of it all they also try and take religion away from those that see it as a comfort and their family sounding like a terrible oh you know that. there is
6:37 am
a person on religion is part of this i have to admit there is a risk of sounding cross the whole time that is of course a book it's course i was quite it is a little funny because one of the best weapons that we have against the elite is humor and taking the mickey out of them and the brits are good at that but religion is well i think that that has been taken away from the idea of beauty and religion the idea of respect and dignity in religion and now i don't know much about russia but i have been to moscow and i've been into the cathedrals and have stood there in awe at the chanting that is done and there's a sense of mystery and that sense of mystery being taken away to a large extent from a lot of anglican wash because we want to have this rationalist worldview everything must be scientifically provable ok well we have to ask you this question you know you are a minority or basically you are going to be uprooted as much as you what you do and hit a lot of the mirror or your editor paul dacre you know to delete you. what i mean very rich on the oversea and they're powerful in some ways but i don't think they're patronizing. on the business side of things but take. the opposite.
6:38 am
it is tell me about finally about this pattern. and even called what does it mean that that is slightly more circumspect and they realize that something has really changed when i think there have been shifted by it by trump and by the failure of mrs may to increase a majority actually act in the name of god terrorism but they are incredibly in the gutter tearing in that they don't want to hear what's going on in the market they have actually created a new glass ceiling even though they will talk about the glass ceiling being shattered there is this terrible distance between the people who are in the technocracy and those who are the group. after the break one of the world's greatest science communicators dr called tells us where we can escape to in the event of a trump nuclear. double standards. the nation's health
6:39 am
secretary who could be asking patients to take a hike. but . it was suggested. and a fairly strong one there were two thousand. do chemicals that. really increase the risk of cancer. by independent scientists so did. needs industry period you for this i received
6:40 am
some time from station for my time as was the others why is that the meat lobby definitely do like what we've been doing and if you want to learn more you'll get a definite on see the outflow you are only not so bad. is it big business against health. as it started. that's all stand in safety a large. a batch or sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry. so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it
6:41 am
was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind it's consumed with death this one. i speak to you now because there are no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker. welcome back it's not the threat of climate change evidenced in a very rare murderous atlantic hurricane affecting your up to load wildfires killing scores in spain and portugal it's the threat of nuclear war that has been on the minds of some bill additions around the world donald trump's decision to unite iran with britain the e.u. tried and russia against the usa let alone trump threats to annihilate north korea means somebody. leave the world could end sooner rather than later who else to
6:42 am
speak to them but one of the greatest science communicators of our age with me is dr call whose new book called the universe and everything tackles some of humanity's greatest questions dr gahl what is this new book called the universe and everything about everything i have stolen various ideas from scientists i'm a conduit i get the brilliant ideas and i filter it and put it a language that people can understand such as for example coffee can help you have a really good nap so we let explains this morning with me well you see we live in a society where we no longer have enough people working longer hours and so god having a nap can turn out that if you have a cup of coffee it takes forty five minutes for the coffee the caffeine the active ingredient to reach its peak so if you have your coffee and then immediately have a nap for thirty minutes and then the alarm goes off and you wake up you have firstly had a sleep and secondly you are picking as the old hippies used to say with the caffeine and so you feel doubly good one pessimistic question given all the news
6:43 am
about north korea in the united states what will it feel like if i give a nuclear bomb goes off here in london from one single nuclear weapon. in any city in the world there will be more burns fixed victims created in an instant than every single hospital in the world put together could accommodate what would happen to any city with nuclear weapons at least one hundred thousand dead immediately plus in the long term things that's where the problems with nuclear power nuclear weapons certainly doing nine hundred eighty s. here during the period governments were saying stop doing research in what seems as a terror of subject go for profit driven sons research is idiotic it's part of the package but it's missing the bigger part of the package because in the modern smartphone as an example. all seven of the major technologies behind the modern smartphone were invented by governments doing pure research with absolutely
6:44 am
nothing positive or short term in mind so i love profit in the process because it keeps is efficient ruthlessly efficient ruthlessly can be a problem and that's why all of government because government has governance and has the medium view and the long term view and working together one keeping an eye on the other that's good because then you end up with those short term research and pure research i should say that broadcasting in this country is your great progress as well is covered by restrictions on impartiality in this country and mainstream media some people have been attacking it because debates on climate change and other end of time subject in a good way they have to have both one has proved the idea that there's been a climate change and one against this idea as if that meddling in debate will get us to the truth what do you think of it well if that makes sense then every time a spacecraft is launched in addition to saying yes we have launched
6:45 am
a spacecraft the equal amount of time should be given to somebody who says the earth is flat and in fact there is a heavenly done above the earth which is made of alabaster which god put there and he put some blue carpet on every note and the things that you call stars they glow worms and equal amount of time should be given to that fruitcake as well with regard to global warming in not a seventy three it's a long time ago munich re the world's largest reinsurance company was already factoring climate change or global warming or greenhouse effect as they called it back then in their insurance premiums. and nineteen late seventies i started reading about it not you know he wanted to my first story and saying well maybe it's real maybe it's not the insurance companies think so they scientists need more proof not a ninety eight they said this is the case it is real no you know what i wrote an eight page center spread for a newspaper in australia the whole set of pages of a tabloid the next year the pretty and he moved kicking it the emails are quite
6:46 am
clear from the new york times that the major fossil fuel companies had a choice admit that israel started this information campaign they went down the same pathways tobacco which even today says the back out is not harmful and is not addictive people who do are just doing themselves down by saying things like oh it's getting hotter this summer it was the ice core data that was weighted with a cold wet like you at the bottom line is this every day we are putting into the atmosphere within. a matter of heat equal to the explosion of four hundred thousand hiroshima bombs the if you got one hiroshima bomb that exploded four hundred thousand of them and did that every day the heat is what we are trapping in the earth's atmosphere by the top dog so we've added if it stayed in the atmosphere the temperature in the seventy's and all he did not is three percent of that goes into the oceans and the oceans in the lower levels. of the high levels of heating up but
6:47 am
also had missions from space showing that there is a list amount of heat living it is how much less a four hundred thousand hiroshima bombs per day during space exploration quite apart from the sides could be one hope for humanity we have to do that we have to become a space going right to hell or wings ago a lump of rock six hundred meters in diameter mistress there was one not so recently recently again if it had impacted on us it would have destroyed immediately in the first go some. between ten to fifty percent of all human life on earth and then the following would be such that we would not have electricity today we wouldn't have a modern society you wouldn't have trains we'd be brought back to a substance to saudi if we had discovered three years earlier we could have maybe nudged it of course but maybe half the time to the earth misses we had three weeks warning we've got to become
6:48 am
a space going right i think there are grounds for thinking that as is the human as intelligent life in the universe gets to a certain stage it also gets a stage where you can walk itself out and we're going to get through that and i think we can i want to mystic for no good reason will have to leave the planet eventually anyway yes five billion years where we got the the sun really just lays maybe just for the one percent we'll be able to afford to go that maybe well and that other things will be about where one distillation of the human race maybe there is in our solar system a moon which almost certainly but with zero proof let me emphasize that zero proof that almost certainly has law certainly certain has life into cells and seven cassini spacecraft after seventy a trip inserted itself into orbit around that many solar system that is saturn the ring planet with a whole bunch of moons and as it came in this is sort of pitch buckshot a little fine particles and they record the data but i had bigger fish to fry like
6:49 am
the rings of saturn and tartan and then they went back and i looked at this buckshot and i thought these are rocks fall for to eighteen animators in diameter and iraq they're made of silicon dioxide the only way that nature can do that is bar running hot alkaline water through rock which happens on the ocean floor on the oceanic ridge so coming out of in soldiers with all these rocks coming out and in still this is a rocky three hundred sixty kilometers. surrounded totally by a global ocean of water not not something nasty like so few against it but liquid water and covered in tali but a show of ice water was not covered also as the water ice and coming out through holes every second from the south pole is one quarter of a ton of water carrying the most years of life carbon dioxide methane cetera formaldehyde and also these tiny rocks in the same way that on the floors of our
6:50 am
oceans only. we've got these harder to move ins the water out of four hundred degree centigrade and strange colonies of laws exist. and this is colonies of laughter not the kind of the sun in the same way almost certainly but we see her proof is the same thing happening on and some of this. saturn at the royal society recently just regathered saying the money is going into the exploration but no into the science little be needed when we get there this is enough money in the system for everybody so consider a billion is it consider the bottom half of the planet three and a half billion humans to equal wealth of the bottom the poorest three billion humans on is in two thousand and ten took three hundred plus billion is a drop down to eighty five sixty seven and in march this year it took eight humans humans white male to have as much wealth as the bottom half the planet and if the
6:51 am
governments do their governments which is their job and i say the people go to politics i myself ran for politics and failed but that's with paris so you have the influence that i have for have no power so kids they should ration stuff sharing the t.v. they go into politics and do good things for your children don't you girl thank you and your monitor here. well for the end of the world l. to learn to go pick the book author and former liberal democrat member of parliament but serious condolences from both of us i'm sure to the family and friends of definite gillet twenty thousand euro reward being offered by wiki leaks for the one woman we can release about them our papers whistleblower terrible tragic bombing off car killing this week but i should say when it comes to journalism good work from the murdoch times appearing to allege foreign office collusion with the regulator of this show going underground on this channel t when it comes to regulation censorship yes curiously it seems that the foreign and
6:52 am
commonwealth office according to freedom of information revelation has been passing on messages from off calm to the people in moscow at the british embassy. before artie is chris if i were a government censor you do the same thing let's go to the doctors or t.v. network fox news well more serious fox news says russia try to use pro come on go to stoke racial tensions as the u.s. well if you even understand this complicated link apparently russia has tried to play book the halloween stuff and i hardly even understand it but apparently you go to places that poke among go and you stand there and according to this something involving a russian link and tumbler and contest in pokemon go means that russia is trying to get people to play program go places where there's been into racial tension for example between the police and black people have suffered in america i'm not making this up and it really is this complicated bullshit play pokemon go this halloween other games are available to help. reelection campaign if it gets
6:53 am
a president that if this works then it'll bring america to its knees if you see the film pixels it might just work but i was with extra terrestrials not with the russians maybe the foreign office should be investigated to resume help for al qaeda link rebels in syria let's go to the tragic story we've chosen the qatari news channel al-jazeera here double standards why aren't we all with somalia this is in relation to one of the most serious and most murderous bombings that have taken place in recent years over three hundred people killed in somalia with hundreds more wounded this is to do with al shabaab it's an ongoing is it to do with al-shabaab or is it to do with u.s. foreign policy well the time of those two things are connected it's said that american foreign policy has helped to destabilize somalia and given this group al-shabaab a motivation to perpetrate these crimes so it's all connected but the big point here is most people haven't even registered this when you've seen all of the coverage in the vegas where there were those tragic killings of many civilians it
6:54 am
was still a fraction of the number of people who were killed someone fifty eight versus three hundred plus in various areas i think they did something with the i've told. but all the more sad because somalia was a beacon of democracy in the post below not to britain and italy and now it's a broken states and if you look at the inside story in somalia the hire a c. which people have heard of is directly related to the poverty this is a forgotten story a forgotten nation not to say the west has to bear some responsibility here in terms of the recent past democracy going wrong and the present terrorism which could as you suggested and quite rightly suggested could be directly related to american meddling murder we'll hear from sebastian could the new austrian politician on the block who has a lot of views about islam anyway probably there are nothing at all as you probably won't hear him saying anything about this explosion it's in a far off country of which we know little and that underline britain is really used to be british maybe so it's an inconvenient truth though because you could argue
6:55 am
that britain's interventions their long time ago a bit of mental. anyway if there's any horror terror attack on the streets of london hopefully they'll get priority if jeremy hunt resumes health secretary gets his way a brilliant new initiative here from jeremy hunt in the media group say they might not be a priority if they can walk the guardian reports jeremy hunt considers barring walk in patients from a and e. there are too many of these walking patients going to doctors you could say he's a casualty of somebody recording what he was saying at conservative party conference he said apparently about the quote from dr helen thomas is a national medical advisor said jeremy hunt has mentioned to some of my colleagues maybe we should have a talk before you walk and then we may well pilot that that's interesting though isn't it the basic means if you've got some sort of serious condition but you're well enough to walk to accident and emergency maybe you have to take a hike after maybe there are just too many ill people going to doctors in our
6:56 am
health so why do you just write letters saying get better don't waste time on the health service male or good thinking that then if the eleven take the wrong. i think a lot of people watching will will see that as a small price to pay. thank you for the show we'll see you exactly when we all see whether this week's unprecedented detection of a neutron star collision creating gravity waves could be used by the pentagon to kill people till then people will be with you on saturday sixty one years to the day british troops captured one of nelson mandela's heroes the kenyan independence in the days before executing him at a time when thousands were tortured and abused by the british during the momo uprising.
6:57 am
still exist. rico's treated as one. hundred three cool. on the island is controlled by the u.s. government and some puerto ricans crave independence. either but i mean. there are. still many do wish to join the u.s. hundreds more leave every day. on time along. with the country at a crossroads anger on the island is on the rise. thank you again this is how it works now the economy is built around corporations
6:58 am
corporations run washington washington media the media over voters elected to businessman to run this country business equals power you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the us exactly just full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to actually live it is the really packs a punch. yampa is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same. apparently better than booth. i see people you never heard of love redacted tonight president of the world bank will take. me seriously send us an email. how does it feel to be a share of the greatest job in the world it's as close to being
6:59 am
a king as any job there is what business model helps to run a prison now we just do or don't like us is nobody oh visitation i don't no one comes in anymore we don't have to sarge only anymore is cost effective that's what they want to do that they don't give a damn if you do the charge or not they're actually paying us to put it back and. the louisiana incarceration rate is twice as high as the us sam bridge what she could is behind such success. is that it.
7:00 am
took. us back forces in syria. ses sam mixtape has finally been driven out of its last remaining stronghold of rock but months of fighting has reduced much of this city to ruin. britain's foreign secretary slams labor party and please repairing on our channel despite a dozen of his own party members and even his father the guests here and we hear from schoolchildren in afghanistan who say they were injured when u.s. troops opened fire after rocks were thrown at military vehicles.
7:01 am
but i welcome you watching art international where she just turned two o'clock in moscow our top story this hour u.s. backed forces in syria have declared a victory over islamic state in iraq are claiming the city is now fully under their control these are the latest pictures from raca and it is virtually a ghost city as you can see the destruction you see here today was caused by either i saw a militia shelling or the u.s. led coalition's support aid agencies are warning that a huge effort is still needed to end the humanitarian crisis there while the international coalition says the city is still not fully liberated and is only ninety percent clear of i saw a spokesman for the u.n. secretary general confirm the destruction we have received reports said much of the city has been damaged or destroyed due to the fighting we're closely monitoring the situation and stand by to deliver lifesaving assistance to those in need as soon as
7:02 am
access is granted that security care traditions permitted well are still to iraq as it's defacto capital in twenty fourteen and the first major military offensive against the terrorists began two years later one series sixth largest city hits now been left shattered. recently correlation air forces were ready to demolish the whole building to target one member of ai so they have no problem considered yes. we ran from death and fear any human being would be afraid of the sound of the planes makes us afraid they were shelling the civilians destroying buildings houses families destroyed by
7:03 am
coalition aircraft any ten percent hit the targets the rest hit civilians. the u.n. estimates that's an average of twenty seven people are being killed in a car every day. and this seems to be no real escape for these civilians are suffering friends relatives family of the children especially. since. now the british foreign secretary has gone on the attack at opposition labor party and paste repairing on our channel calling it a scandal if you study the output of of russia today and indeed if you consider the state of the of the press in russia at this present it is an absolute it is a russia today it is a scandal it is
7:04 am
a scandal that members of the party opposite are continuing to to validate to validate and legitimating. that kind of propaganda by going on those programs strong words from boris johnson that his repeated you. of the word scandal as he talks about r t in the on the floor of the house of commons on the tuesday he talked about labor members of parliament appearing on r t but of course members of his own party have appeared regularly and frequently and. since the channel began r.t. has responded to those comments editor in chief margarita simonyan called johnson's remarks but no all she said that he was using his own freedom of speech to bully his colleagues for exercising that that's of course is a pretty awkward conversation it's an awkward conversation that he may be having with his own father because stanley johnson has appeared himself on r.t.
7:05 am
he was on one of our shows going underground talking about his. book and he was asked by host action returns the whether any of the characters in his book were based on either of his sons i do notice how you take sides in this book what does this mean or take kerry stokes the a bully a blonde haired former mayor of london how he was absolutely living up to the expectations people have of him wowing the crowds where every went he could be serious too if it was absolutely necessary who is this former mayor of london character a little serious to do is absolutely as it were we all will face the reality sometimes we have to be we have to be serious well you are right. you know i said absolutely nothing will be that happy but now it's over who it is look i'm not saying that that particular character is a million miles away from another member of my family whom you have. mentioned today that he didn't confine his comments to r.t.
7:06 am
he took a russia as a whole in his inimitable fashion the russians have been up to all sorts of mischief in many countries but so far we come here ok for any direct russian cyber attacks on this country so he doesn't have a specific instance in mind but boris johnson has in the past hinted at why he thinks russians are so mischievous he says they do it because they can. well as laura mentioned there are a number of conservative party m.p.'s have appeared in r.t. to you in the past two years alone fifteen of them have come to us to talk including former energy and climate change minister charles hendry and also assistant government whip mike freer well another person we often speak to me from london met in livingston we're pleased to say he joins us again welcome back i suppose though the fact that you are here is nothing less than a scandalous according to boris johnson what are your thoughts on what he said
7:07 am
i was absolute rubbish i'm here i watch british television channels but i would say what are our two characters hearing from it gives you a better balance every country television channel broadly reflect their culture and their interests you really if you're just confined to watching british television or reading british papers you will not know a lot about what's going on in the world america's complicity and british support in overthrowing a democratically elected government falls by funding or selling arms to saudi arabia which is using to kill many innocent civilians in yemen i i find that when i'm watching r.t. i get better coverage about the scale of loss of life by western interference in syria which you just don't see if you're watching british television or reading british papers where he went out he went on to say that the people who do appear in
7:08 am
r.t. are actually just validating propaganda from what you say it's the opposite it's giving you a much broader interpretation of what's happening. and that's exactly right and that's why i appear on any channel that wants to interview me but for boris johnson i.e. the outrageous thing here is that back at the last mayoral election when i lost to him he put pressure his campaign did on our b.b.c. to cancel the debate between the candidates just a week before the election and they gave into that so the idea that russia revealed in the hands of its government and the british media is not is absolute nonsense and if you look at our newspapers the bias in the law is in many of them are unbelievable. also he was saying he has only just targeted labor m.p.'s in particular but when why can't people just decide themselves where they wish to speak and what they want to talk about but i'll tell you this if you offer boris
7:09 am
johnson several thousand pounds to come on r.t. he will suddenly find a reason for doing it it is i mean johnson has been promoting himself his entire political career going on any media outlet he can get on to what the situation here is he's now our foreign secretary defending western interests and western strategy in places like the middle east and therefore he wants to undermine any other media outlet that's actually challenging the sort of propaganda that the british government pumps out we're speaking to a conservative m.p. a little earlier and he said that politicians should being encouraged to engage with the media are not the only great the media i mean that's a fair point isn't it because it's all about hearing different views in an encouraging discussion and debate. if i can't think i've ever refused to appear to be interviewed on any television channels i could physically
7:10 am
get there in time i've always thought it's a way of getting news out to people in the truth out to people and the best balance you can get is i think absolutely essential if you want a proper democracy then you need to have the voters in that democracy able to access all the different points of view so you can make up their own mind and the idea that we should try and block off or stop people appearing on our t.v. is absolute nonsense just for the rock will kill you when ever you want me yeah well and when you do come on i mean just so the view is no you're not pressured to sort of say a certain thing or your comments aren't censored other no i mean i've never had anyone i just turn up you ask questions i answer the moment no one's ever said to me we want you to say this or we don't want you to say that whereas i can think of one or two british and programs where i've been told please don't mention this or that you know and just lastly g.g. think people will listen to what boris johnson has said he think that people will
7:11 am
be deterred from perhaps coming on to channels like are today. no not at all i mean boris johnson has actually alienated a lot of his own colleagues in the house of commons on the conservative benches because they beginning to realise he's not seriously a politician with a real political agenda he's a sort of person just want to be famous and lobby should have gone into show business he'd be better at. it we'll leave it there good to sochi that was a former mayor of london ken livingstone thank you. now given you this afternoon u.s. troops in afghanistan have allegedly fired at school children injuring two boys the shots were apparently fired after children three rocks at a military. national how this morning i want to go to school when i entered the school some of a classmate sticks stones and threw them at us equals they opened fire in return i
7:12 am
injured my leg my friend was also injured now i'm in hospital. i came to school and i was playing there when the u.s. convoy passed by some of the boys threw stones at it then the u.s. forces started shooting. the. understand that the children threw stones at the u.s. tanks the don't know any better because their children but the u.s. troops are educated we came here to rebuild their country instead of children. we set up a cardiologist this was not the kind of reaction you expect they should have contacted the school administration this is not good we condemn this incident the government shouldn't just agave this case but we've been in touch with nato command in afghanistan to clarify exactly what has happened but as yet we've had no
7:13 am
response the united states and today afghanistan in two thousand and one believing the van ryn. taliban was sheltering asama bin laden he was wanted over the nine eleven attacks but sixteen years on and with bin laden long out of the picture the americans are still there and the casualties from that foreign troop presence is mounting. he said to me for me i was praying in my house and when i saw american helicopters i told my wife and children to save themselves after that i just heard a loud noise and then my house was destroyed six people were wounded including women and children. they destroy our house and our family members wife the americans are killing our women and children every day in afghanistan and they just say sorry it was a mistake. sitting
7:14 am
in a room together and suddenly we had the massive bombardment of our village and i was injured. melissa when the explosion happened i was near to my uncle and cousins american soldiers opened fire and a bullet flew about my face i ran in here and came out on me hours later my uncle and cousins were dead so i went to the village to tell everyone what i think of the sixteen years of being in afghanistan it's quite obvious the strategy has not worked whether politically speaking are tactically speaking and then they look at military operations i think one can say that whatever they do it backfires that there's not been proper accountability apart from a few soldiers that have been arrested on behavior like this but by and large there's always a legitimate excuse to come up with saying blaming someone else rather than themselves. a muslim public holidays could eventually be recognized in some parts
7:15 am
of germany it is an idea being floated by the german interior minister to potentially include islamic festivals to the public holiday calendar other politicians they want so sure a senior m.p. for the christian social union which is the chance this is the party has said it's completely out of the question the interior minister later played down the idea saying he's being misread interpreted we asked a few people in berlin what they think. i have absolutely no problem with it it's fine germany is a country open to something like that yeah it's been met i'm just not sure about that if i moved to another country they wouldn't just establish holidays or things close to my heart i have mixed feelings about it. i think it is difficult to establish a muslim holiday in germany as it would challenge the tolerance of many people even if they are not christians this could boost right wing ideology i think we should
7:16 am
wait at least twenty five years until the societies acceptance level is strong enough while the latest survey does suggest that seven out of ten germans would reject the introduction of islamic holidays in the country and as you would expect the issue has exposed deep divisions. the reality is this that. merkel's party the christian social democrats are being forced into leading a really important debate which is what does integration look like angela merkel's attitude on this is going to be that we have an enlightened german society which talks about political is a freedoms of people to live as they want people to freedoms for people to worship and live free and to be integrated in a democratic a secular society what you've got is a gym a politician capitulating once again to make minorities hundreds of different religions you can have hundreds of different holidays at the end of the
7:17 am
day christian culture christian holidays and stop capitulating to islam europe as we see it today and it's going to continue to be is going to be more integrated i think the difficulty is that we've seen with the rise of the alternative for deutschland in the recent parliamentary elections they the far right there neo nazi the fascist the anti immigrant the people who want to see a breakdown in a multicultural society and having different factions at each other's throats what you want to segregate people died not on and it is a christian country if you're muslim holidays go to a muslim country go to a christian holiday you expect to abide by the christian rules if i went to a muslim country and expect to abide by the muslim moves there soon they wouldn't give me a christian holiday so let's go to christian culture christian values you're barred by the christian bank holidays and the christian laws i think creating a plural democratic free society where people are free to live and express their beliefs as they see fit is really really important we don't want to have offices and workplaces and schools where muslim jewish and hindu kids can have time off
7:18 am
because those holidays are not protected and visit the only thing germany is talking about anybody arguing against is really to create it in prehistoric. well what you want the segregation it's quite clear you want segregation you want to segregate people into a religious belief and. so let's go away celebrate their own religious oldies what we want is a fully integrated national holiday like we want to be as i would national day for england a full integrated national whole of the people that we don't want to segregate people like you do we will fully closely followed. you watching are still ahead for us britain is still on high alert in the danger of an extremist attack is the number dented level according to the head of the country's domestic intelligence we'll have a look at that after the break. what politicians do sometimes. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected.
7:19 am
so when you want to be president. or some want to. have to go right to be close this is what the three of them can't be good. interested in the water. seemed wrong. just don't call. me. to say proud these days because educated and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
7:20 am
welcome back now in britain the head of the country's domestic intelligence service is warning that the threat of terrorism is a number precedented level the statement from andrew parker came during a speech to journalist specializing in security it's clear that we're contending with an intense u.k. terrorist threat from islam mystic stream ists that threat is multi-dimensional evolving rapidly and operating at a scale and pace we've not seen before the director general of m i five has issued warnings like this before july twenty sixth eighteen he said in an interview that a terror attack in the u.k. was a matter of when not if a few months later he stressed once again that there would be terrorist attacks in the u.k. well with the u.k.
7:21 am
hit by several atrocities it does seem his previous warnings were pretty accurate and there's another side to this to arise and hate crime in the u.k. because according to the home office it's up by recalled twenty nine percent compared to twenty fifteen and as you can see from this graph this spike was triggered around the time of the referendum and has been repeatedly fueled after each terror attack that is hit the. i recall a story from a colleague of mine who ran
7:22 am
a counter extremism program in london in some of the most deprived areas of islam to be exact and he said that some of the boys that he was. expected to kind of radicalize had been affected because of hate crime their mothers had been sworn it. had been spotted that they had suffered hate crime in this case and that just made them more angry and they were seeking a sense of belonging with the extremists or the radicals sort of speak so yeah it does have a knock on effect and this is the issue. now so many people attended the fake news discussion at the world festival of youth and students at the moment they ran out of seats at the venue youngsters from across the globe are in sochi for the gathering the number of participants they're quite impressive see over twelve thousand visitors in fact from russia itself and slightly more from over one
7:23 am
hundred other countries is the middle of the festival week that's awash with cultural sports and science programs serious matters the race to as well as open discussions involving prominent social and humanitarian activists but of course making friends is the best part. the world has such a long tradition of bringing people together and really breaking down artificial barriers between countries i think it's been the most fun meeting people from one hundred eighty different countries i think specifically meeting people from north korea was super special because i would have never had that opportunity anywhere else honestly i can't even describe how i feel so lucky i'm so fortunate to have this opportunity to be able to meet people and educate myself about cultures all over the world and different societal and political issues it's i can't even explain the feeling i get from this experience it's amazing nobody has any barriers against each other there are no there are no grudges i think how excited everyone is to see americans i was very surprised because the conference is about anti
7:24 am
imperialism but whenever i talk to these countries that are affected by u.s. policy in a negative way they're still so excited to see us here in solidarity with that it's not anti-american at all so plenty of enthusiasm then for the event and the young people in such have had the chance to hear from a host of well known figures from prominent scientists to orphans and entertainers and today a world famous motivational speaker from australia brought behind. what don't you like about the things you'd be remembered for what do you want to be remembered for tomorrow's not promised for anyone and every single one of you is valuable with the permission of the person sitting next to you give them a hug give them a high five i want to see some love going around this room right now.
7:25 am
well over the decades the festivals are proving to be a life changing experience for some of its visitors and today we have the story of a soviet boy and a german girl who met the event in moscow sixty years ago but whose plans to forge a lasting friendship just weren't. the converse of that she kingdom subdeacon there's always a beach and she's going to get so deal with a good deal of crazy america must be a bad. thing i'm not. that good we need to get their work done so we do the blood where we need to be a good chance you could use that and so i did despite the it would mean you're just . me on the us some of us thought it wouldn't use were other disappeared beneath.
7:26 am
the surface of the small fish more additional growth of the of the mist if you use such a school so you're just a little bit of the first but i see nines we should all store leisure time i would he jean you. know you'll swim in a watch in the coolest bust even though you would she need to be sure. sessions on the porch in photoshop and so while we're going out with the cool look for storage could be a lot of short lived of all the speakers and the couple of us that know nucular what each of us in the. book will decide the rules.
7:27 am

7:29 am
styrofoam polystyrene batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between brom pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from their exposure from the berm pits would really literally send a v.a. broke and they don't want to pay it so the wady and decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they will have to pay and. cultural to get the middle finger to their views from bipolar disorder. delayed tonight will be done. her. leg.
7:30 am
length. oh and welcome to crossfire where all things are considered i'm peter all of hollywood elites present themselves to be the champions of virtue and liberal values the same elites have found common cause with the left part of the political spectrum the harvey weinstein scandal presents a very different picture a truly ugly picture will hollywood now face up to its own hypocrisy.
7:31 am
cross talking hollywood hypocrisy i'm joined by my guest rob how big new york he is a political pundit and journalist contributing to the huffington post also in new york we have lionel he is a legal analyst and news decoder at lionel media dot com and in west palm beach we cross to dr gina loudon she is a psychology expert and host of america trends with dr gina all right in fact that means you can jump in anytime you want and i always appreciate it line to let me go to you first i've been watching you on social media you've been covering this topic quite extensively. the thing that i draw from it is i understand what people do in hollywood ok people buy and sell themselves ok i don't think that's a really big story but i what i really so totally disappointed with but probably also expected is that you know when they when you're on the right side of the
7:32 am
barricade you're vilified you're destroyed you're buried you're forgotten but if you're friends of the powers that be of the elites you give a free pass to people oh i didn't know about it it's terrible ok and then they let it go it's so unfair and it is such a double standard go ahead lionel. and two thousand and five this brain trust called and i disagree they are not the left they are not liberals are not progressive they're just hollyweird but in two thousand five years ago they resurrected a conversation a private conversation between then donald trump and billy bush ad it was called locker dog and it meant nothing to people talking not in front of women not in front of judge or private ok cut to the chase they wanted to use that as the group of a million for their indictment to happen not only is it logical for
7:33 am
a president but impeached and the like ok this pig harvey weinstein that they knew for years was involved in sexual predators should have women he could have had any woman he wanted just by saying you want a part but he didn't want that he wanted the power ok now what happens is when it comes to the fore a clothing lisa bloom his advice get a woman who supposedly what is that is the daughter of laurie already who basically was going to describe a woman ok one when they're spending it on the lie when they're you know what's in a ring or all of a sudden they look the other way ok all right let me tell you i can and then call it like that but i was staggered to live and let me pull in quite simply are there double standards here i mean there are a look at the bill o'reilly look at bill clinton i mean and all the other bills you know it seems you know that they. thank you it seems to me that the reaction is
7:34 am
really quite one sided and why is that is it because people like harvey weinstein are there their donors their connections with the clintons and the obama's and the fact is that a lot of stories were covered up over the last decade or so i mean we know this that has been a cover up i mean again the double standard go ahead rob in new york. i don't i don't think there is a double standard i think that there's bad behavior on both sides good it's been pervasive for years at fox news it's been it's happened in hollywood i'm not denying it but there are conservative elites you have the koch brothers you know there are liberal elites there are leaks in this country who have money and power and they're on both sides but to say that the right is squeaky clean and. i'm not saying you know what i'm not saying that i don't think any and i don't think anybody is saying that now no one is saying that ok what i'm so what i'm saying is that that if i go to jena and west palm beach for the warmest part of the
7:35 am
program here. you see that you know why didn't people come forward earlier you see these type of political connections here and it was about convenience and i think there's hypocrites on all sides ok when it comes to this issue here but at the same time you we do know that the new york times over a decade ago was working on this and it was squashed ok squashed and and i have to wonder why women in hollywood didn't get together sooner or maybe they just preferred to have a job ok go ahead. well rob's accusation is ludicrous there is absolutely a double standard and it's evidence by the fact that lisa bloom even talk harry weinstein's case because she's supposed to be the advocate for the sexually harassed sexually abused whatever woman right and then look at this what about hillary clinton who hasn't had a word to say about this whole thing what about the obama's who were all talking
7:36 am
about the locker talk incident that lionel mentioned that was blown into something huge that as he mentioned there is no there is no proof of anything ever actually happening by donald trump and yet they're trying to make comparisons on that there is a complete double standard and we know that hollywood is where the black ball was started if you didn't do what the big powerful producers wanted you to do you would not just not get that movie role right you would be blackballed from all of hollywood i just moved away from california peter because their moral bankruptcy in hollywood has spread well much of television to janet is a money and power base of the democrat party ok they did james would be joining you pretty soon because he is quite hollywood because he was as he believed he was discriminated against blacklisted because he was a conservative here i know one of the things that's happened over the last few weeks the late night show hosts i guess that there is zeus sitting up there in
7:37 am
their summit here i looked because i don't find them funny at the left isn't funny anymore i don't find them funny and i find i'm really mean spirited and the free pass that harvey weinstein is being given oh that was a little much for a little on the side off the cuff thing but if donald trump dropped it had been anything like there's a touch of the president they would have you know a field day i mean there is a double standard go ahead lionel exhibit a. exhibit a lauren michaels executive prelate pate that has rome of as sydell was confirmed did add an after hours party said hey why didn't you mention avi weinstein and he said this is a new york thing you know peter this is this antimony inferi of theirs we don't need no stinking badges and we don't follow the usual words the usual laws but here's the bottom line all we're asking for is very simply this if you're going to
7:38 am
go after donald trump for a conversation let me repeat this of conversation to people alone thinking they weren't being recorded and it would be used in future old twelve years later if that's what you're going to do if you're going to hold him up to that standard then when you have this rapacious hollywood who by the way this isn't the casting couch we're not talking about unwanted advances or mr lowe ferial these are serious observation accusations the same group by the way that when bill clinton was included in this people of the other way and hillary clinton just denied it these are the same as you would say liberal or progressive who had this breathtakingly enco haired woman's march with people walking around with foam rubber pudenda and actually. actually judge who spoke who was herself the victim of
7:39 am
harvey who was there and i guess when she said is it ok is it goes clear ok now here i come look all we're saying for it is very simply that ok a good protection. is what you're going to let me go back let me go back to rob you know i've already said in this program if you want to go to hollywood and you want to be part of that cesspool buy and sell and all that you know that i guess that's there's a place for it here ok but but it rob at the same time i mean these are the same people who come on in these award shows and show their liberal values some. they care about women how much they care about minorities and don't build that wall and get rid of donald trump this is what i find bridge with ok what people do when they go to hollywood and they want to engage in that that's their personal business here go ahead bob. well i'm going to have to agree with you here that this may be what we might call their comeuppance you know by the way leinil. sound of of the sorest stuff the deep in the dream i just sort of lime love listening to my i have to go
7:40 am
to look up words constantly i'm learning a lot from you i'm going to go i want to give you all a quick anecdote about three years ago i got overly horatio rochelle it had been in the lobby assess corporate alien isms and polished a lot of metaphors i was in the lobby of the beverly hills hotel and i heard someone screaming and i thought perhaps that someone was hurt or in trouble and i came walking over and there was a man on a cell phone were raining so that whoever was on the other end with obscenities it just it was behavior that was pure oil was a good one little you know any way a high school kid couldn't do this and it was harvey weinstein and i remember walking away thinking my god how does this guy get away with this i mean anybody else would have been carted out of here where the beverly hills police department and shackled so yes this has been pervasive pervasive and endemic in in this business for so long and they are getting their comeuppance and i think they pushed
7:41 am
it a little bit joining us on the war i mean let me get let me get along here in the novel let me give you the last forty seconds in the in the first half of this program go ahead react to what you've heard so far go ahead yeah i think this is the tip of the iceberg honestly and i think that social media and the way that people have cameras and things these days made just go ahead and and pull more of this out of the crevices and i hope it does because i know that weinstein is just the tip of the iceberg in hollywood ok i'm going to i'm going to jump in here way to go to a short break and after that short break we'll continue our discussion on hollywood pop chrissie stay with us. was selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings pins to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle of. the new socks for the tell you that will be
7:42 am
gossip in public but most importantly. off the bat doesn't tell you on the cool enough to buy their product. all the hawks that we along the border will want. to colin is still exist. ricos treated as one. hundred point zero three cool as little can i know a lot of c. doesn't make. the island is controlled by the us government and some puerto ricans crave independence. getting about on a. good at either way but i'm going to sort of randomly go over that again a game. still many do wish to join the us hundreds
7:43 am
more leave every day. but i'm a long way from india. with the country at a crossroads anger on the island is on the rise. dogs may not only be tasty but also deadly the relationship between. it was suggested. and a fairly strong one there were two thousand right outside the ball in the study it's a very extensive study done by a well respected scientist. do chemicals that down the advertising. really increase the risk of cancer and i chose the means are known to use damage in the launch of tests is it a sham that skepticism. that this is true by independent scientists so did the industry and you for this i received some compensation for my time as well as the others why is that i me too happy.
7:44 am
to like what we've been doing and if you want to learn more you'll get a definite on the love you. hear. back then. is it big business against health. is it started. in safety. welcome back across like we're all things are considered i'm peter lavelle to remind you we're discussing hollywood hypocrisy. ok i want to go back to. west palm beach again another element of this story here i want to keep stressing here what people want to do what kind of relationships they want to have with their bosses they submit to a humiliate themselves if that's what you want to do to get ahead in life i feel
7:45 am
are actually more sorry for you and at the same time i think the quality of the talent in hollywood is really you know it's a swamp i mean i don't think they present values that i have nothing in common with them that's why i used to live there i don't live there anymore and i'm very happy . about it but jane one of the things if you trust in the new york times story which i always have a huge huge grain of salt on my shoulder and i read them because i have very little trust in the new york times these days for actually a long time but the number of journalists that submitted to pressure and editors pushing journalists not to say this not to let it go back off and then the you know we have hollywood actors big names you know they go they call up these women don't push it don't push it you know don't don't rock the boat i mean this is corruption in all kinds of levels of life here and i think this is one of the most important thing that harry weinstein is a pig that's no news apparently it's not news that a lot of people have known that for thirty years apparently but the news is is how
7:46 am
they try to censor this out and people are willing to get to go along with it i find that truly shocking and really disappointing gina go ahead. yeah you know everybody in media wants to talk about collusion all the time right we're going to talk about collusion let's talk about the collusion between the democrat party and hollywood and the fact that hollywood is a lock stock and barrel in favor of democrats at every single turn let's talk about the fact that weinstein gave almost seven hundred thousand dollars that we know of to democrats i don't think he gave any to republicans and now they try to cover it by saying oh we're going to give it to charities to women's charities they gave thirty thousand dollars the d.n.c. thirty thousand dollars to emily's list emily's list is just a pro-abortion lobby basically that is not a charity for one thing and that's not giving the money away because it's going right back into leftist democrat coffers the exact same beneficiaries that have
7:47 am
been benefiting from those like weinstein who everyone just shut up about like you pointed out even the media totally quiet because they like getting the money funneled to them from the hollywood elites so so there's no way to say this is on both sides like my friend rob over there said there's no way to say this is on both sides this is i mean isn't that the media is quite for the left hollywood gives all their money to the left no the money the money and the power out of hollywood all goes to one side i don't think you'll dispute me on that the media being quiet on this they were never quiet on anything regarding trump where they go ahead rob in new york first of all let's not talk about individual politicians like trump got elected by the way despite his his comments to billy bush oh i don't even think that it's. it's discussable right now what's more poor we're talking about the people outside of washington the power brokers not the individual politicians and
7:48 am
there are power brokers on each side for each party you have the koch brothers on the left you could have wind or be the koch brothers on the right of weinstein on the left but they're always there it's not even to think that to have any is on one level of sexual misconduct. well i think also my brother just ahead of me but i think the koch brothers so that's a that's a fair issue but they don't run hollywood ok i mean hollywood is just an extension of the democratic party that's what i see how i look at it ok i mean they've they're they would symbiotic ok i don't see any major forces on the right minus fox and fox is fifty percent against trump and the republicans these days ok so it's a pretty much stacked deck and i think that's the if they bring in line and you know that's the another issue here is that you have the mainstream media the corporate media minus fox to some degree you have the democratic party and you have hollywood it's for me this is closing out taking the oxygen out of the room and
7:49 am
only talk about things that interest them that's one of the problems here hollywood's a big part of the problem go ahead. now you're correct the focus is not on people being involved politically the pockets of the focuses is there a double standard let me repeat this again harvey weinstein penza deal interestingly enough with lisa bloom lisa bloom is that she is the daughter of the feminist rights lawyer gloria all read the babe ruth of lawyers and she signs a deal with harvey weinstein then she either is enlisted to help them or serves as his lawyer any his dealing with this now remember little conflict of interest the new york times the boards and others in fact the weinstein board get rid of her and harvey because they say you know lisa bloom not think about this are advocating discrediting witnesses women who com forward who dared
7:50 am
to impugn the integrity now this is from a woman can you imagine if i good great dear friend rob just think about this and madge an if. or a trial lawyer or make new general manaf order whatever they made the same thing not a dossier that was no but did just imagine there would be a five three song for not a frothing fomenting volcano of activity cold bare camel saturday night live it would be nonstop but crickets crickets all right let me go to wrong here gentlemen jury. come on we've got to give rob some oxygen here in the house how does this go a go forward here because you know when. harvey came out and he said he was sorry which was not kind of sorry at all the way i read it i appreciate it all talked
7:51 am
about a cell he actually got to the bottom of this threw it away but he talked about himself as he's the victim in this is the left always does that always does that ok you know this is this is the problem here this is this politics of victimization and and i think that you know when he came out and said i'm going to make i think i'm paraphrasing and i'll make a. and r. a film you know if that kind of atones for this ok i mean and everyone that's a good idea harvey that you know you got connections maybe you could make that i found that to be pathetic is whoa go ahead rob. i'm not defending harvey you're not his lawyer and you're not his lawyer go that everybody knows that and i think i think there were quick to condemn the whole industry and i think that they've made some missteps in terms of defending him and in fact he said and i was appalled by this that some of these these accusations may not be true and they obviously are
7:52 am
all true i'm sure i'm sure there's going to be a lot worse that come out. it's a complicated situation and it's very difficult for me to defend because and i'm not talking about harvey and i'm talking about the general behavior of the hollywood elite am unity over there was not a big fan of the emmys i turned it off when it's hard to watch because i think there are a bubble living within a bubble now you have to you need to vomit bucket to watch that stuff ok gina let me go to you because for me now it's absolutely ok rich people you know walking around with their their jewelry you know rattling around their neck and all that on their wrist i mean and then talking about how great and wonderful they are rich people get awards and they spit down at everybody else you can't even come they have security there oh they're really secure right there but when you go to another venue for a country music and you get shot up ok neither the elites protect themselves here
7:53 am
jena that for me it's an indictment of the hollywood culture and mentality ok and you know i'm sick and tired of these so-called celebrities current ones or has been spewing about politics when they don't know jack about what they're talking about. and while they're disallowing any voice of the other side you know i was actually part of an organization inside of hollywood that had to hide it they had to be underground and had to network with one another because they knew if they were ever found out they would be blackballed from hollywood you cannot have a differing opinion other than the straight up socialist mindset if you're part of hollywood and that is just a fact and yet the very politicians they support let's look what's come out of him we not only have weinstein we have anthony weiner we have bill clinton i mean the list goes on and on so when you really want to think about who the party is that champions women are which side of politics because most of us these days don't even
7:54 am
like to identify with the party it is not the left that is out there defending women it is conservatives who believe that women should be honored and held held in favor and that's what many of us on the conservative side would love to see people like rob advocating within their own ranks because they definitely need help there is a hypocrisy there lol disagreeing with your doctor letting obs a hey look i don't agree with this guy rob beetroots two against one action against landline rob what rob go. i'm kind of flabbergasted at dr jean as a response that the conservatives on are women i mean ok let's attack harvey weinstein on the left a little bit here but let's not champion the right and make believe that they put women up on pedestals unfortunately there are guilty parties in both parties about ok well you know on that point i have to agree with lionel here. man that put them
7:55 am
so you have these powerful positions and i don't care what your political coloration is should be absolutely condemned obviously ok but what i take umbrage with is what political elites and media elites to make one man's sins worse than another that's what i take exception with leinil go ahead peter imagine again the issue that we're speaking of is double standards not. the policies of the d.n.c. they are zero but imagine this assume argue i know for the sake of argument the following let's assume that was a a republican or a conservative version of meryl streep. who not only lauded encourage r.v. wind or kept your mouth shut but she would make you money everybody is making money and thirdly new about this but lauded in addition to that roman polanski now i'm just saying and i'm not going to argue the merits of. the question you asked very
7:56 am
simply is is there a double standard the answer is yes and let me tell you who knows that mainstream america mainstream main street the people and they're also asking why did blade runner why is it crashing why is the new jet i movie why is hollywood freaking out because netflix and others are just destroying it they need this right now like all of the ok hang on here is cool i know you let me do normal involved in a good job let me give gina the last word on this program hopefully with her great powers of speaking she will stand warmth from florida all the way here to moscow go ahead thirty seconds. that really do my best i think that i think that you know it's a sort of punctuate the conversation that we've had we have to look at leaders in the democrat party like hillary clinton like the obama's who have yet to even make
7:57 am
a statement about weinstein and imagine for a moment as lionel has pointed to if the shoe were on the other foot and this was donald trump and something had come out finally with any evidence behind it about donald trump would hillary clinton and the obama's be silent the answer is no that is the well i guess away so i guess just to everyone here will stand or we're going to move for a long interview correctly and we're going to go from lock her up to lock him up i suppose ok we've run out of time many thanks and i guess in new york and west palm beach and thanks to our viewers for watching us here at r.t.c. you next time and remember crosstalk rolls. we all willingly accepted the risk of being shot wounded taken prisoner but new forced signed up to be friggin poisoned by our own people that was nuclear
7:58 am
biological and chemical products the said do not truck tires all types of styrofoam polystyrene these batteries trucks there was a complete denial i think at all levels of government that there was any connection between berm pits and what these brave soldiers were suffering from to compensate every soldier marine airman and sailor that was on the ground that are complaining about illnesses from their exposure from the berm pits would really literally send a v.a. broke and they don't want to pay it so the wady in decades a lot of those soldiers will die in time and they will have to pay and. called relevant to the middle finger the movie is to model is. delayed and known to be done. with all made goods manufactured consent to instant to the public wealth. when the
